Big E on not being part of WWE Royal Rumble 2024
Big E recently appeared for an interview with Senise Salcedo, where he was asked about not being a part of the Royal Rumble match and enjoyed the match as a fan. Big E said that it feels cool to be a fan and enjoyed seeing his friends and being reunited with them backstage.
“No. I think it’s really cool just to see the past couple years. As performers, we’re so often in the mold of what’s next. We’re always thinking about our career. But the nice thing is since I’ve been out I’ve been able to just sit back and be a fan of people and see kind of the lay of the land.
“It’s nice to be excited for people like Jade, for Liv coming back. Just so many of my favorite people. So for me, I don’t have any weird feelings about not being myself. It’s just cool to root for my friends and people who I think are really talented.”
“It’s really cool. For me honestly it feels like a big reunion because I’m not on the road regularly. So a lot of the people that I’ve known for quite some time, I don’t get to see all the time. So it’s just nice and especially for big events like this, for WrestleMania when you see so many people you haven’t seen in so long. It’s just nice.
“We are in many ways, a big traveling circus. So an opportunity for us to all get together again is really lovely. To do it just down the street from where I live. This is my community. I live in Land O’Lakes in the Tampa area. So it’s been beautiful to see all the love and excitement just around my city.”
